It's gettin', it's gettin', it's gettin' kinda hectic.
I'd like to wish a belated Happy New Year to everyone! It's been awhile since I posted on here, so I thought I'd give a bit of an update.
I've taken a little bit of a break from Custom Car Home lately, but I will be working on it again soon. The main reason for this is that I am back on the job hunt, and it is pretty draining (hence the above quote). I am excited about the prospect of doing Android development professionally, however, so it will be worth it!
The second reason for the break is that I've been working on a new app: Ringtone Randomizer (title subject to change). I occasionally add new ringtones to my phone, but it's always been hard for me to just pick one that I like. With Ringtone Randomizer, you can create a list of as many ringtones as you want, and then each time you receive a call your default ringtone will randomly change to a different one from the list. That's the gist, anyway. I hope to have it finished soon, since it's a relatively small undertaking compared to Custom Car Home.
I'm also excited to say that I will be receiving an Adam tablet next month! For anybody who hasn't heard of it, it is certainly the most advanced Android tablet around (until the Honeycomb tablets come out, anyway). I'm going to look into making some apps for it, too. If you're in the market for an Android tablet, you should definitely check out the Adam (http://www.notionink.com).
That's it for now. Hasta luego!
I've just put out 1.1.7, the third release for the week! Due to quite a few requests, you can now import and export your home screens and settings. They are cross-compatible between the free and donate versions. It makes things a lot easier if you are switching from the free to the donate version. Here's how you can take advantage of it:
- Open the free version and hit Menu->Import/Export->Export Data->Yes
- You should see a toast that says "Export successful."
- Open the donate version and hit Menu->Import/Export->Import Data->Yes
That's all there is to it! The exported data is stored on your SD card at sdcard/CustomCarHome. The export will probably fail if you don't have an SD card (looking at you, Nexus S), so I'll look into a solution for that.
Also, due to another request I have added a new setting: "Enable custom brightness." If you had a custom brightness level selected before, make sure you enable this new setting or else your brightness won't change.
Last, but not least, I fixed some bugs involving the creation of the app list. If you were missing any apps or getting duplicates when you refreshed, this should fix that.
